Yes, you can make a variable and colorful handwriting font!
Thursday, 30 September 2021
8:00 AM CST – 9:00 AM CST
During this workshop we will make a variable color font based on your own handwriting. You will also learn how to apply some basic OpenType layout features to make it even more natural.
We will use FontCreator which only runs on Windows. It is best if you already have it installed; you will receive a temporary license for the professional edition during the workshop.
Back in 1997, Erwin Denissen developed a font editor for Windows as a graduate project at Fontys University Eindhoven (The Netherlands). Over the years he continued to improve the software, now known as FontCreator. Due to the intuitive user interface and its superior tools for editing and proofing OpenType layout features, FontCreator has become one of the most popular font editors known today. The upcoming FontCreator 14 will fully support variable fonts, as Erwin strongly believes they will soon become mainstream. Erwin lives and works in Bilthoven and usually tries to avoid conferences.
